从求职邮件中获得建筑工作的5个技巧
5 Tips To Get An Architecture Job From An Online Post

由专筑网李韧,韩平编译

正如小编之前提到的——如何在线申请建筑工作?有许多网站会发布关于建筑岗位的招聘信息,但这只是白纸黑字的说明而已,你该如何把它真正转换成一个工作机会?我仍然认为找到工作的最好方法是利用你建筑界的人脉网络。然而,进入心仪已久的事务所工作也并不那么容易成为现实。

那么,找到工作的最好的方式是什么呢?

1、别忘了求职信

在网上申请工作时,一封求职信是必备要求。这是你的营销文件,你要通过它向用人单位传达你的专业性,并且介绍自己。
突出你的经历中最好的部分,但不要过于啰嗦。
求职信的首要目标是让未来的雇主知道你是谁。如果你有一个共同的同事或联系人,请一定要提到他们。
强调你的“软”实力。
例如,强调你强烈的职业道德、满足要求的能力,或者自己长时间的工作能力(这项技能在建筑中并不少见)。
表现出你对公司的热情。另外,一定要用主动语态代替被动语态,“我着手这个项目”比“这个项目我有参与”要好得多。
另外,一定要言简意赅,尽量保持在一页。
更详细的求职说明请看:“如何做出完美的封面信息?”


2、抓重点!抓重点!抓重点!

根据一项新的研究表明,招聘人员对于每份简历平均只看6秒。
因此,你要用简洁的格式来突出你的最佳工作经历。
不要做机器人。市面上大多数的通用简历并不靠谱,请务必通过你自己的方式来让你的简历独特而有趣,并且清楚地解释为什么你能胜任这份工作。
要想制作一篇精心设计的简历,请看“如何编写完美的简历”。


3、遵循指示

大多数招聘职位都有关于他们希望你提交什么以及包含什么内容的要求段落。请特别注意这个信息。
例如,这是某建筑设计院的招聘信息:
“请提交一个小于5MB的PDF文件,其中包括求职信、简历、工作样本,请发送至邮箱jobs@xyzarch.com。求职信中应包括你在美国工作的经历、薪资要求以及具体的法律授权。电子邮件主题为:XYZ申请职位:您的姓名。不遵循上述指示的申请人将不予考虑。
注意最后一句。这是你作为潜在雇员的第一次测试。你能遵循简单的指令吗?
你可以将这些信息复制下来,列出一个清单,这样你就不会错过任何信息:
PDF文件(5MB以内)
求职信
能力
薪资要求
在美国工作的经历
简历
作品集
发送电子邮件:jobs@xyzarch.com
电子邮件主题:XYZ申请职位:姓名


4、拼写检查和校对

这是非常基本的建议,如果不是曾经出现过太多错误,我不会把它列在这里。尽管正确的语法十分重要,但我仍然看到许多错别字和结构错误的句子。虽然建筑工作并不是一个需要过多文字创作的行业,但您至少要保证未来的设计说明要准确无误。
不要仅仅依靠拼写检查。
常见的错误,如“他们”与“他们的”之间的区别就不易被发现。你可以在发送邮件之前让朋友帮忙校对一下。
这里也包括你的作品集,其中的文字叙述常常因为图像的表达而被忽略。如果你找不到合适的人帮你检查,你就大声读给自己听,这样你比较容易发现其中的错误。


5、你的提交任务

申请工作时通常有两种情况:网站提交和电子邮件。
如果有选择,我宁愿提交电子邮件。与网站提交相比,它更加直接。

网站提交

一些大型建筑事务所将在其网站上开设应用程序。
你一般有两种选择:
1、附加一个PDF
推荐使用这个选项。如果网站上只有一个文本框,那么也许是格式问题。
2、纯文本文件
这通常是不允许格式化的纯文本框,应用时需要将应用程序文档格式转化为HTML和纯文本格式,这样才能更加清晰。

电子邮件

如果你通过电子邮件申请职位,那么我建议你的邮件正文中包括求职信。通过将求职信作为电子邮件的一部分,还可以通过它加上两个或三个独立的附件(求职信、简历和作品集组合)。

希望这些技巧有助于你顺利找到工作,祝你好运!

As I previously covered in, Where To Apply For Architecture Jobs Online, there are many sites that post architecture jobs. While it may be there in plain black and white, how can you translate it into a job offer? I still maintain that the best way to get a job is through your connections and network within the architecture community. However, depending on the firm you want to work for this isn’t always possible.
So what is the best way to go about landing that architecture job offer?

1. Don’t Forget The Cover Letter
This is an essential document that is even more vital when applying online. It is your marketing document. It is your two sentence “elevator pitch” that introduces yourself.
Highlight the best parts of your resume without duplicating it.
The number one goal of the cover letter is to let the prospective employer know who you are. If you have a mutual colleague or connection make sure you mention them.
Emphasize your “soft” skills.
For example highlight your strong work ethic, ability to meet deadlines or working long hours if required (not uncommon in architecture).
Show that you are enthusiastic and passionate about the firm and the role. Be sure to use active voice instead of passive. “I started the project” is better than, “the project was started by me”.
By the way, make sure you keep it short. One page is ideal.

2. Get To The Point!
According to a new study released by TheLadders, on average job recruiters spend only 6 seconds looking at your resume.
This highlights the importance of having a concise, well formatted resume that highlights your best work and experience.
Don’t be a robot. Be a person. Most generic resumes do not sound genuine. Try to add a personal touch by mentioning something unique and interesting about yourself. Clearly explain why your qualifications are a good fit for the job.

3. Follow Instructions
Most job postings have paragraph on how they want you to submit and what to include. Pay special attention to this information.
For example, here is an excerpt from a recent architecture job posting:
“Please submit one pdf document no more than 5MB that includes a cover letter, resume, and work samples to jobs@xyzarch.com. The cover letter should include your availability, salary requirement, and specific legal authorization to work in the US. The email subject field should read: XYZ Intermediate Position: Your Name.Applicants that do not follow the instructions above will not be considered.”
Note the last sentence. This is your first test as a potential employee. Can you follow simple instructions?
Often it helps to copy the instructions and reformat as a checklist so you don’t miss anything:
ONE combined pdf (5MB max)
Cover letter
availability,
salary requirement
authorization to work in the US.
Resume
Sample portfolio
Send by email: jobs@xyzarch.com
Email subject: XYZ Intermediate Position: Brandon Hubbard

4. Spell Check And Proofread
This is very basic advice and I wouldn’t be listing it here if it wasn’t a problem. Despite the obvious importance of proper grammar, I still see many applications with typos and poor sentence structure. While applying for an architecture job may not be an extensive literary exercise, your application documents should be error free.
Don’t just rely on spell check.
Common mistakes like “they’re” versus “their” will not be picked up. Have a friend proofread everything before you send it out.
This includes your portfolio, often it is overlooked because of the graphic emphasis. If you can’t find someone to check it for you just read it to yourself out loud. This can help find mistakes you may have otherwise missed.

5. Your Submission Mission
When applying there are usually two scenarios: website and email.
If given the choice I prefer to submit to an email address. In comparison to a website submission, it is one less layer to get through.
Website
Some of the large architecture offices will have application portals on their website.

There are generally two options:

1. Attaching a PDF
Always go with this option first. If they only offer a text box then can be a formatting issue.

2. A text only box
This is usually a plain text box that does not allow formatting, you need to have your application documents formatted for both html and plain text when applying so they are both clearly legible.

Email
I recommend you include the cover letter in the body of the message if you are applying by email. By keeping the cover letter as part of the email it takes out one step from clicking on two or three separate attachments (cover letter, resume, and sample portfolio.)
Hopefully these tips are helpful for your next online architecture application. Good luck!
